Eight new awards for busybuilding at Ermis Awards

Ermis Awards 2018

We are extremely happy to share with you the latest distinction of our work, at Ermis Awards — one of the most iconic institutions awarding creativity in communication in Greece. Emerging as one of the big winners in the Branding & Design Category, we received eight awards across the spectrum of branding & design services. Also, for a tenth consecutive year, we landed near the top of the list of the best agencies in Greece — second only to our friends at beetroot, to whom we “passed the crown” and the title of Agency of the Year we received last year. 

We are so proud to see the work we developed for and together with our clients acknowledged and rewarded by our peers. And this includes all the work we created over the last year, even if it was not awarded. We would like to dedicate our awards to all our clients and partners as a way to thank them for their trust and the strong belief we share on the positive impact of good design.

D&AD and The Dieline Awards

Awards 2017

Proudly announcing two new international distinctions of our work. In the D&AD Awards 2017, recognised globally as the ultimate creative accolade, entered and attended by the best from around the world, our project “Greek National Theater, Season 2016-2017” was awarded with a prestigious Pencil Award. The series of Catalogues & brochures we created for the theater’s performances address institutional, creative and important practical needs and limitations, resulting in a distinct identity using custom illustrations, visualizing a per play different yet all together harmonious theatrical universe. Additionally, we were awarded with a Dieline Award 2017, for the packaging design of “Zore Zalo”, a grape-based alcoholic Cretan drink with bold masculine character and clarity, which is exported exclusively to luxury hotels, restaurants and delicatessens.

Thrilled to be featured in Monocle magazine

Monocle magazine

We had the great honour to be invited by the iconic Monocle magazine, to contribute to their new feature ‘The Consultants’. The concept of the feature
is to highlight a potential gap in a selected market and, by consulting industry experts,
set out a plan to fill it.

In the June 2016 issue, the market gap identified was for a new cruise brand to capitalize on Greece’s national heritage. Experts such as Filippos Venetopoulos of Variety Cruises,
Chef Lefteris Lazarou and design label Zeus + Dione also contributed to the article written by Nathalie Savaricas and busybuilding was commissioned to create the new brand.

Find out here how our White Dot Fleet could revitalize
the industry and the country’s finances.

Akis Petretzikis


Logotype design for the distinguished chef Akis Petretzikis. The dominant element of the concept is the use of the chef's name initial letter, which the design explores in a dual way: showcasing a signature visual identity and at the same time acting as a symbol that connects the personality with the creative image of the chef. The logo thus acquires a second level of comprehension, as each application creates an idiosyncratic exchange between fonts and symbols.
